Week 1 College Football Preview

2020 SEASON RECORD: 0-0-0 (0%)

WE ARE BACK BABY!!! With the first week of Power 5 College Football we are tipping our toe in the water this week with a few game previews and bets. I went 56% last year… going 60% this year. LET’S GOO!

Week 1 Game of the Week (All Times CST)

Louisiana-Lafayette (+12) at #23 Iowa State – Saturday 11:00am

Game Preview: You may laugh at this game at first glance. But the projected Sun Belt Champions taking on an Iowa State team that is known to struggle with early season opponents? Yes please. Louisiana-Lafayette returned most of their offensive talent from last year and will keep it close.

Pick: Iowa State 31-21

Top Picks of the Week

Arkansas State at Kansas State (UNDER 54.5)

Arkansas State only scored 24 points on a bad Memphis defense. They will not put up many points against a Kansas State football team that likes to control time of possession. Kansas State/Arkansas State under.

Duke at #10 Notre Dame (-20) – Saturday 1:30pm

Love the favorites this week and with COVID and limited fans… bet on the talent. I project Duke to be one of the worst Power 5 teams in College Football which makes Notre Dame by 20 points an easy bet.

#1 Clemson (-32.5) at Wake Forest– Saturday 6:30pm

Clemson is absolutely loaded with talent on both sides of the ball. Even their backups will go out and dominate to make an early statement. Additionally, Wake Forest coach Dave Clawson was quoted saying they haven’t been practicing tackling as much… the Navy coach said the same thing and was blown out 55-3 against BYU. Clemson is the easy pick.

Coastal Carolina at Kansas (-6.5) – Saturday 9:00pm

The night cap of everyone’s Saturday, Les Miles is looking for revenge after losing to Coastal Carolina last year. While I don’t think Kansas is a very good Power 5 team, they should take care of business as they are slightly improved from last year.
